When you were in your mother’s womb and couldn’t see a thing, you received your very first impressions of the outside world through your sense of hearing. So your sense of hearing is older than your sense of sight and thus connected to a more primordial state of learning.
While your vision tells you about what is happening in the world in front of you, your auditory attention encompasses space in all directions. Yet most people orient through their life with a bias towards the visual, reducing the overall scope of their attention.

Reawakening and refining your capacity for deep listening can fundamentally transform your relationship to self, others, and the surrounding world. Reality unfolds musically – it is layered, rhythmic, and expressive, and your biology and psychology are intimately interwoven into its fabric.
The art of deep listening is a life skill that lays the basis for transformative change. It is a form of listening that involves the whole self – not just the ears. When we open ourselves listening without judgment to what is really present in our experience, new pathways of thought, sensation, and action become possible.
